Responsive Web Design
Using the magic of HTML5, CSS3 and JQuery technology we build fully Responsive Web Sites designed to elegantly & comfortably adjust to a wide variety of internet devices for easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling.
What is a responsive web design?
A responsive website also known as a liquid, fluid or adaptive layout is an easy to navigate website optimized for iPhones, iPads, tablets, small screens, large screens, jumbotrons, and everything in between. The website flexes into optimal positions based on the user’s screen size for ideal readership, scrolling, and navigation.Responsive is characterized by having defined layouts for different resolutions. Within each layout, the design is liquid and resizes the width of elements relative to the changing window size. For example, your website might have a navigation bar across the top, but if the site detects a mobile device, it will stack the navigation vertically to function and look more like buttons. A non responsive website uses a static layout. Static layouts are the traditional web: one design that sits in the center of the page and requires horizontal scrolling if the window is too small for it.
An ever increasing number of people are using Smartphone’s and tablets to browse the internet now. And if your site does not look good on every device or is hard to use .... they will not buy from you.This means that you will no longer need to have separate mobile, tablet, and PC versions of your website. Your website design will adjust to virtually any device and it will display beautifully and legibly without the need to zoom in.
So how does it work? Essentially, a responsive website design will detect the size of the display that it is being accessed from and adjust the layout accordingly. Elements of the website design will resize, change shape, and move themselves based on the width of the browser screen. Responsive designs also tend to incorporate percentage based layouts to allow for maximum compatibility.
Transitioning your website to a responsive design will require additional time and effort, but with the way the industry is moving and the obvious advantages, it will put you ahead of your competitors!
• Usability – Regardless of device or desktop screen size, users will have an optimized experience when accessing your responsive design website. This is good for SEO because Google and Bing want to send visitors to websites that have a great user experience. If you don’t have a responsive design, users visiting your website on a mobile device or tablet may return to the search results to find a site that is more easy to use.
• Mobile Searches – Google favors mobile-optimized websites when presenting results for searches made on a mobile device, especially when these mobile searches are for local services.
• Only One URL – Responsive design allows you to have one URL, instead of two separate websites for desktop and mobile. This means you can focus all of your SEO efforts on only one website. Your backlinks, and corresponding page rank, won’t be split between two websites.
